    Forfeiture costs Lady Tamaraws as quest for title hat-trick comes to an end

    Sep 18, 2013

    ADAMSON ended Far Eastern University’s bid for a third straight crown in the UAAP Season 76 women's basketball tournament when it defeated Ateneo, 59-50, on Wednesday at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

    With the win, the Lady Falcons claimed the No. 4 spot with an 8-6 win-loss record and shut the Final Four door on the Lady Tamaraws, who fell to 7-7 after five of their victories were forfeited due to an ineligible player.

    FEU actually finished the eliminations with a 12-2 win-loss slate but dropped to fifth place when Vangie Soriano was ruled ineligible for playing in a commercial league during the UAAP season.

    Joy Cochico had 13 points, five rebounds, eight assists, and two steals for the Lady Falcons, who will face top-seed National University (12-2) in the Final Four on Sunday, 8 a.m. at the Big Dome.

    The Lady Bulldogs got the No. 1 seeding over De La Salle, which beat University of the East, 82-58, to wrap up its elimination round with an identical 12-2 slate.

    The Lady Archers will take on third-seed University of Santo Tomas (8-6), also on Sunday, 10 a.m. at the Big Dome.
